Frisch's Restaurants, Inc. Clarifies Payment Of Special Dividend

CINCINNATI, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  As previously announced, Frisch's Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE MKT: FRS) declared a special one-time cash dividend of $9.50 per share payable on September 14, 2012, to shareholders of record on August 31, 2012.  This dividend is taxable as an ordinary dividend and not as a return on capital.

For material special dividends, the rules of the New York Stock Exchange require the ex-dividend date to be one business day after the payment date.  Accordingly, the ex-dividend date has been set for Monday, September 17, 2012. Shares of the Company's stock will trade with "due-bills" beginning August 29, 2012 (two business days prior to the record date) through the September 14, 2012 payment date. Shareholders who sell their shares before the payment date will not be entitled to receive the special cash dividend from the Company.     

Due-bills obligate sellers (who were shareholders of record on August 31) to deliver the dividend to the buyer.  The due-bill obligations are settled customarily between the brokers representing the buyers and sellers of the stock.  Frisch's has no obligations for either the amount of the due-bill or the processing of the due-bill.
